Even if Hillary should win, do you think the Republicans would leave her in peace as president? I

believe they would start impeachment proceedings as soon as they possibly could. Hillary would
have no time to function as president at all -- the Republicans would see to that.

I can't imagine anything more damaging to our nation. And with the evidence that already
exists from the Inspector General, (we still have nothing official from the FBI) the Republicans
will probably succeed in their impeachment.

Can anyone see any good reason for Hillary to continue in her presidential campaign at all? I
see nothing but trouble -- big trouble for our whole nation!

With globalization the 0.01% Super-Rich are getting richer, but the rest of the American

people are getting poorer. At best, globalization can last only until the point where
too many Americans will have become bankrupt, and we will have become a
Third-World country. The Super-rich, by that time, will have fled the US to live
abroad with their riches stashed in foreign countries. Nobody will be trading
with us because we will have nothing left to trade with.

That's one way how globalization could end. I suppose there are better options
that we could try to look for.

Maybe deep down Hillary doesn't really want to be president?!......

All the trouble stemming from Hillary's emails! I am reminded of Goldwater's
candidacy for the presidency in the 1960s:

When campaigning in Florida, he said that he was against Old Age Pension
(And FL was full of retired people)!! When in Appalachia, he told the people
that he was against the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority)!! I was wondering
at that time, if at some level of consciousness he didn't really want to be
president.

Could something similar be happening with Hillary? Consciously she seems
to want to be president so badly, that it looks like an obsession with her.
Yet, bright as she is, she seems to be making mistakes that most people of
average intelligence would know how to avoid. Maybe deep down she doesn't
really want to be president?!?

Are you saying that you don't yet know that all news media use the words "may,

might, alleged".....etc.....until the case is officially over, such as when a court
has found someone guilty, and the judge is ready to pronounce the sentence?

One of the important things Elizabeth is doing is trying to get more Liberals into Congress. No

Democratic president can get much done when Republicans control both houses of Congress.

Warren is trying to bring down Wall Street, haven't you heard? If you don't know that

by now, what do you know? What's wrong with her having more wealth than DWS?
She is older and has worked longer. She also has written many books. She should
have more wealth than DWS.

How about the very likely probability that the Republicans would impeach Hillary for her

role in her emails, if she should become president? Will they be taking that into consideration
during their deliberations?

Of the 3 presidential candidates, Bernie is the only one who has a positive favorability

rating. Both Trump and Hillary have negative ones. When Bernie started running a
year, hardly anyone knew him (I didn't know him either), and today he is giving
Hillary a good run for the money.

My question is: How can you say something like "but no one liked him before...I can
imagine what they think of him now." and keep a straight face. It's a statement
that is the exact opposite of fact. Republicans are known to use that tactic - if it
can be called such.

Trump, though nominally a Republican, is independent of the greater evil, (Corporate

America) , and both the Democratic and Republican Establishments are under Corporate control.

She is for maintaining the status quo. This means maintaining the slow death.

Corporate America is slowly bringing total destruction to our nation. And Sanders is making a try
at defanging the monster! What an incredibly huge undertaking!! Someone has to begin this
mission. Sanders is it. My hat off to his integrity, courage and daring!!

The chances look slim now, but I haven't given up hope that Sanders would somehow still win.
Trump is certainly no bargain. I don't think he'd stay too long on the political scene, even if he
should win the presidency. He has no business in being in politics at all.

You've given the main reason why the Democratic Party won't change with your "The Democratic Party

officials and their families are awash in corporate cash and want the gravy train to continue."

Both the Republican and Democratic Establishments have come under the corrupting
influence and domination of the Corporatists -- the Republicans since always, and the
Democrats beginning with Reagan.

No, the Democratic Establishment won't change. That's why Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth
Warren have begun their movements to tackle the problem - not just on the surface - but
at its very roots: Break Up Wall Street's death-hold on our nation!

And a huge and gargantuan job it is! I admire them for their courage. These two are the
leaders of the Liberal/Progressive Democrats.

Donald Trump is nominally a Republican, but basically he is his own man. He takes orders
from nobody. Oddly enough, the Republican Establishment is cautiously giving in to him,
after having initially opposed him. They still are opposing him, but very cautiously.

I think one of the reasons for this cautiousness is that Corporatists and their minions,
the Republicans, have gained their tremendous power over our nation mainly through
trickery, bribery and corruption. They have practically BOUGHT THEIR WAY TO POWER.
But this has no influence on Trump. He cannot be bought because has plenty of wealth
of his own. Also it looks like he is the spoilt brat type, and he does things in his own
way only.

The Republican Establishment people are stuck with Trump. The Democratic Establishment
people are dealing with Sanders, but the Democratic Establishment people have the upper
hand at the moment.

Another odd thing is: The majority of Republicans are against Trump, yet he is their
Primary front-runner. The majority of Democrats are for Sanders, but Clinton is our
front-runner. We are all in an odd predicament, indeed!!

We are all keenly watching and waiting to see what further events will develop in the
future.
